The Wait is Almost Over for Stranger Things Season 3

After what seems like an eternity, Stranger Things Season 3 is almost upon us - and we can’t wait to binge the latest episodes which are hitting Netflix on the 4th of July! 

The first season was a feast for the senses, an awesome 80’s vibe with a mash-up of pop-culture references, a spooky storyline and a group of kids played by surprisingly talented actors who everyone loves – especially Dustin, right? Season 2 kept the retro roller-coaster on track with more of the same action, not to mention another awesome soundtrack! Many fans complained that it was too much of the same and that the show didn’t pursue a new story arc, personally I was able to look past that and got exactly what I wanted, more amazing Stranger Things! 

The directors had said that they were planning on making Season 2 an add on, or ‘bigger’ Season 1, and I believe they delivered on that – no doubt Season 3 will give any disappointed fans a reason to fall back in love with the Netflix show. In the wise words of Jim Hopper “Nothing is gonna go back to the way that it was. Not really. But it’ll get better. In time.”

  • Eleven is my favorite, always liked shows and films with kids that have abilities

  • Who to chose…it has to be Dustin. I’d like to say I’m confident but in the words of Dustin: ’I don’t feel good about this. I don’t feel good about this! "

  • Hopper is my favourite character in Stranger Things. I love his sass and fresh answers. Tbh though they are all pretty cool 😎.

  • My fave character is a close one between Hopper and Dustin, I say back and forth because they both just have amazing qualities. I think Hop just makes the lead though, love his story and attitude, and how he took El in.
